Hi all

Looking to see if you could help. Had a hut built next to the outside wall of the house, however there is very little space between that and the wall and worrying about water ingress/dampness. Is there anything that can be placed along the hut against the wall that would stop the water. I have a length of angled plastic that I considered using the address the problem, however not sure what the correct practice is.

Any help/suggestions would be appreciated

Thanks

Michael

Yes it should have some type of flashing, typically lead. That is a pretty poor job to be honest. :(

What was where the "hut" is now? A set of doors, or window maybe? I can't work out why you have got 2 rows of weep vents 3 courses apart on the elevation just above that new flat roof :confused:

Hi guy.

This was the side of the house, no windows etc. Lead flashing is an option, however is there anything else.

Cheers

Thanks for the suggestion. I understand how this would work, however are there any tricks to the application as it appears the cure/stick on contact so I would need to get it half and half and in a striaght line

Cheers

get the 300mm f/band and give it a gentle heat with a torch, stick half on the wall with the rest sealed onto the roof.

Still don't understand exactly what you mean freddy? :confused:

OP I would go along with alastair's suggestion. I would be half inclined to run a length a tilt fillet down the junction prior to the flashband.
